“Good Place to Stay Along Hwy 5”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

It is hard to find a pleasant place to stay along Hwy 5. Trying to break up a road trip to Tucson from Mendocino County, the Best Western Plus Villa Del Lago Inn was the best place I could find, based on tripadvisor reviews, along Hwy 5. I wasn't disappointed. It was near the highway but far enough away to avoid road noise, so it was quiet. The room was good sized and clean. The service was excellent. About an hour after we checked in, we got a call from the front desk inquiring if everything was OK with our room. The restaurant attached to the hotel, where we had dinner, was excellent and the service there was also very good.

The hotel is located just off I-5 and has easy access. Located near a lot of fast food places and close to stores etc. Despite proximity to freeway, no noise. Room was clean and good size. Easy to walk the pets around the complex - in a quiet area. No breakfast - only downfall.

We stayed one night at this hotel as we drove the length of California on 1-5. The front desk called to see if we liked our room which was a nice touch. Any conversations with the front desk were very pleasant. The frig and micowave were handy and the room was lovely and clean. Although the hotel was right off of the freeway there wasn't any traffic noise. Several chain restaurants were located nearby by but we ate breakfast on the premises. The only odd thing about the hotel was that many of the rooms were arranged courtyard style around the restaurant. Even on the third floor, we heard bar noise from below until 10:30 at night. It was literally right outside of our door. We would stay here again but would request a room on the side halls away from the restaurant/bar noise.

Room Tip: Request a room on the halls away from the restaurant/bar.

When one reflects back on a hotel stay and the BEST memory was that of leaving the freeway and stopping the car, it goes without saying that the hotel experience was less than quality! This newish hotel was a major disappointment on several levels. First, the positives. The Room was clean. The room was spacious. We asked for adjoining rooms; we explained that my brother -in-law was gravely ill with leukemia and that it was important we be next door to one another. The desk person told us that this could not happen since we had our dog with us and all "dog rooms" did not have adjoining rooms. Strike one. What about offering us adjoining rooms with an extra doggie deposit? That would have worked perfectly for us....instead, we were just told "no". I worried most of the night, since I had no access to my ailing family member. Strike two occurred when I realized that the sink was broken in my room. I called the desk and was told that it would be reported to maintenance the next day. No offer of fixing it or moving me to a different room. Strike three was the worst. The AC was on full blast when I first entered the room. I soon realized that there was no way to adjust the temperature. Then, at exactly 3:25 am, the AC unit made a loud popping noise, waking me up....and it died. Stopped. The room grew warmer and warmer....I opened the windows. Still warmer. I reported this nightmare to the front desk and again was told, by the not very awake desk clerk, that it would be reported to maintenance. No offer of a room reduction. No apology. Nothing. Usually, my Best Western experiences have been stellar. This one was very disappointing. My advice? Drive a few more miles north...you'll have far more choices.

Room Tip: If you have a dog, just know you will be on the first floor....NO EXCEPTIONS.

We found this hotel years ago & have used it as one of our main stops ever since.

The location has easy access to both south & northbound I-5. The complex the hotel is associated with makes one stop complete. There's two different gas stations, one with a carwash. You also have a Starbucks & a varied selection of restaurants to choose from. All of these are within walking distance from the hotel, which is nice after being on the road for hours.

The hotel parking lot is flat & large with lots of room to park whatever size vehicle you have including trailers, campers, motorhomes etc.

The hotel is always clean & bright. There is a restaurant & bar just off the main lobby. The rooms are good size & in good shape. We appreciate the fact that a fridge & microwave are standard. The beds are comfortable & the linen is always clean. One of the best features is how quiet the hotel is. The staff is always helpful, efficient & pleasant.

Overall this is one of the better hotels you can visit. We would & do recommend it whenever we get the chance.

Another great Best Western. Very friendly staff. We slept well. The hotel is far enough away from the highway, that noise is not an issue. They have a nice inner courtyard restaurant with good food. We had a beautiful pear, walnut salad with fresh mandarins. All of the staff were very friendly and courteous.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is away from the 'courtyard' on a weekend.
